The former Enugu Rangers forward who had his first cap on March 6 in the goalless draw with Mexico in a friendly match, played in the first half before being replaced.

“I’m very happy. I didn’t conceive the thought of making the 30-man list with the great number of Nigerian stars at home and abroad,” Uchebo told Goal.

“I didn’t imagine that I was going to be talking about a call-up to the team. My World Cup invitation was a surprise, but with a big desire. I think that I am in a great moment.

“Now that I have the chance that I sincerely look forward to - I am going to try to fight for a place and take advantage of this opportunity,” the former VVV Venlo star said.

On the chances of Nigeria doing well at the World Cup, Uchebo said:“Well, as you know it’s the World Cup and every country that has qualified harbours the dream of winning the tournament. No one should write off Nigeria as we have the talents and quality to succeed at the international level.

“My teammates and I are not afraid of any country, either small or mighty, because with our wealth of experience as players and exposure of our technical crew we will surprise the world in Brazil. All we need is to play as a unit and take to the coaches’ instructions”.
